Mavericks sign former PBA import Jarrid Famous
DALLAS — The Dallas Mavericks have signed free-agent guard John Jenkins and forward Jarrid Famous.
Jenkins was a first-round pick by Atlanta in 2012 and played three seasons with the Hawks, averaging 5.6 points and shooting 45 percent in 14 minutes per game. He played in 98 games with three starts.
The 6-foot-11 Famous started five games for Washington’s summer league team this year, averaging 10.2 points and 6.8 rebounds. Undrafted out of South Florida in 2011, he spent last season with the Iowa Energy and the Texas Legends in the NBA Development League.
Before being signed by the Mavericks, the 27-year-old Famous played in the Philippines — suiting up for the Globalport Batang Pier in the PBA where he averaged 30.2 points and 23 rebounds through nine games.
Dallas announced the signings Friday.
